COLLECTIVE SECURITY. (Hansard, 22 July 1936)
HC Deb 22 July 1936 vol 315 c416
2. Mr. MANDER

asked the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs whether, in view of the success attained in the British Empire by the policy of collective security in protecting it from attack, he will seek an extension of the principle and the inclusion of other States willing to co-operate loyally on this basis?

Mr. EDEN

The policy of His Majesty's Government as a member of the League of Nations is to apply the principles of the Covenant collectively, and it is their hope that all Governments will co-operate to this end.

Mr. MANDER

Is it not a fact that the British Empire has a great lesson to teach the world in the successful working of our collective system, as in so many other things, and will the right hon. Gentleman press this forward as energetically as he can?

Mr. EDEN

I will do my best by precept.

Mr. H. G. WILLIAMS

In view of the circumstances, will my right hon. Friend make sure that we do not transfer any part of the British Empire to any foreign State?
